Righteous Shall Flourish (II)

By Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa
Transcribed By Charles Oluyori

Take curse out of your head- remove the curse out of your head. Stop liking only bad things. They don’t believe that they deserve good things! They are poverty-oriented! They have been taught that the poorer they are, the nearer they are to God, whereas, poverty is a disgrace to God.

How can your heavenly Father have everything and you have nothing? How can your God be the Alfa and Omega and you are nothing? How can your God say, the silver are mine and the gold are mine and thousands cattle on the hilltop and the hill where the cattle are standing belong to my God; and you have nothing on earth- it’s a trick of the devil for you to think “the poorer you are the holier you will become” that’s not true.

Revelation 3:8 says, “Behold I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it”

So I said to myself what can I do if I know I wouldn’t fail? What could you do if you know you couldn’t fail? How many miles can you go if you know there’s money to go there? How many houses can you build if you know God can provide the money?

I began to ask myself- Idahosa what could you do if you know you couldn’t fail? And God said- all things!

So when preachers in Africa come to me and say “Bro things are very down and there’s no money here, I say, I wish your God and my God are the same. Because if the God that I know is the one you know- you are the head and not the tail, you are blessed and not cursed. And guess what I began to teach my people to cancel the curse out of their head because Galatians 3:13 says, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law”

Say- “I am redeemed”

There’s no Christian that is under the bondage of enslavement that the devil try to put you in. if you believe that silver belong to God, God doesn’t use silver, if you believe that gold belong to God, God doesn’t use gold. If you believe that hundred cattle in the hilltop belong to your heavenly Father, God does not eat beef. So who does He have all these things for?

Say- me!

We have been so tricked out of blessing that the only good song we know how to sing are suffering songs. We have been so oriented by sinners to believe that we have no rights to have access to our Father’s treasure.

And Jesus says, “I give you the keys to the kingdom” and many of you have the keys but you don’t know where the door is.

So you are living in hunger, stagnation and weakness. Your suffering would have gone long ago if you believe what I am saying tonight- your heavenly Father owns everything. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.

The money in the banks in this world comes from the heavenly Father. Government is not the owner of everything- God is the owner of everything.

So what did I do? The first thing I did was to take my name out of the list of those who are cursed. I took my name out of the list of those who are not prospering. And the bible says, be it done to you according to your faith.

And so I said to myself that from now my faith is that I am good, I am on top, I am not at the bottom, I am the head, I am not the tail, I am in the front not at the back, I am blessed I am not cursed. The Lord is shepherd, and that’s all I need. Alleluia!

I who was the president of Poverty Association, I remove my name! I who was the Chairman of “Have-nothing Incorporated”- I remove my name. I who was the chief of all sinners- I took my name away. And I say God, whatever faith it takes to be well, I’m going to be well. Whatever faith is takes to bless the poor I am not going to be the poor, I am going to be the one blessing the poor.

Then I read that the righteous shall flourish. And so I said God I am tired of having little things, I want to flourish and the Lord say if you hold me and I hold you, you will flourish.

So for 32 years now I grabbed God’s trouser and for the last 17 years I refuse to let Him go and I began to believe that my God is not as small as the government.

My God is not as small as the biggest bank in the world. With bank many things cannot be done but with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26)

And I began to learn lessons on how to live righteous life, on how to make Christ the strength of my life, and I began to learn the lesson that Paul learn when Paul said it is no longer I that liveth but Christ that liveth in me.

I began to take God to my street people, I began to take God to the blind and they began to see, to the lame and they began to walk, to the deaf and they began to hear, to the weak and they became strong, to the down trodden and God began to lift them up.

From that day I began to sing new songs, I tell myself the things that aren’t possible with man are possible with God. For with God nothing shall be impossible.

I began to think right, I began to wish myself good, no matter what you wish me, I will wish myself good. No matter how you look at me, I look at myself as beautiful. Then I began to find in the bible how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel. So I began to wear good shoes instead of bad shoes, I began to read in the bible, he shall worship God in the beauty of His holiness. So I began to pull my old poor garment and began to worship God in the beauty of His holiness.

One night God said to me, son you know why you have small things- I said no. he said- because you don’t believe in big things. I said I do, He said no- show me one bog thing you have done. I looked round my whole life- not one! Then I read this scripture:

Ephesians 3:17-19, “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, maybe able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length and depth, and height;
